How to build a better human being

April 15, 2014 – 1:31 pm
  I am honored by the opportunity to work with exclusive tactical outfits around the world. Because of my job, I've been able to walk in circles that most people do not. And in those experiences, I have observed certain commonalities; measurable phenomena which have proven to me the veracity of my conclusions. Pushing a soldier, an agent, fighter or a first responder harder, longer or faster and then having him or her perform skills under high-intensity, does indeed make them able to perform the skills harder, longer and faster, but it does not allow them to perform the skills BETTER. What is better? We should define "better" with the outcome of the skill execution which we most desire for the situation. Is it performed more precisely, accurately, effectively, proportionately and more appropriately timed?  Because of my background and my family history, I have sought throughout my career to increase the soldier's, the agent's, ...

The happiest people do not lead the easiest lives

April 15, 2014 – 1:29 pm
  The happiest people do not lead the easiest lives, for the things we need the most to grow often cause us the most dread of failure, loss and hardship.  "Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better." ~ Samuel Becket Happiness doesn't come from success, but from the ability to move through failure enthusiastically. God knows we get enough practice! :P We are Legion, Scott Sonnon, COO RMAX International a2a_linkname="The happiest people do not lead the easiest lives";a2a_linkurl="";

The origin of Russian club swinging: SAMBO

April 15, 2014 – 1:28 pm
The first movie I saw in Russia in the early 90s called "Invincible" showing club swinging as part of the creation of SAMBO (see 7:35). Now I fly to Russia this week to go teach Clubbells in TACFIT. What an honor to experience this full circle adventure!     a2a_linkname="The origin of Russian club swinging: SAMBO";a2a_linkurl="";

Can you restore your arch from falling?

April 15, 2014 – 1:26 pm
  Can you restore your arch from falling? Supposed experts have claimed it is impossible but continual research pours out proving that with minimalist footwear and mobility exercise it can be restored. The arch is a bow and your leg is the arrow it shoots. When ankle and toe mobility is lost due to fixation in over-engineered, rubberized coffins which the industry calls "sneakers," the otherwise stable bones of the foot become forced into movement: the drop, the arch falls. Restoring mobility to the toes and ankles - with proper incremental progression and recovery - allows the bow of the foot to restabilize and as a result the elastic limbs of the bow begin to reform. I began teaching this approach in the 90s with the NHL New Jersey Devils due to their excessively high non-contact related knee injuries as a result of ankle over-stabilization in skates; and to military and law enforcement personnel ...

The 3 things you’ll need to succeed

April 8, 2014 – 5:46 pm
The 3 biggest deals of my career in the next 3 weeks, and today, everything that could go wrong, went terribly wrong. Before I departed my house, I said to my wife, "If all of these go through, with all of these moving parts, they MUST be MEANT to be, because no matter if I try my hardest and smartest, I couldn't do this only on my own. This will take Divine Intervention to make it all work." She and I discussed how we can only work our hardest on the one thing we can at that time, and then the next, against what appear to be overwhelming responsibilities, and then pray for the best. So, the day began, and one proverbial tree after another fell in my path. How does one know if the obstacle in front of you is a sign that you're struggling against what's not supposed to happen? Only ...

Speak the same to billionaire or homeless

April 7, 2014 – 9:19 am
How wealthy, influential people can speak to me, shocks me. How hard-working, everyday people can speak to me, humbles me. I receive a diversity of messages. Sitting next to each other within my inbox this morning, I found these two messages: 1. "Scott, I am an executive at XXX (big corporation). Send me your TACFIT workouts to review [for free], and if I deem them sufficient quality, I might be vocal to those many over whom I hold influence." 2. "Mr. Sonnon, sorry for the private message. I'm in need of your help with TACFIT but just got laid off at our factory, I can't pay the full price. Would you allow me to pay in three installments? Being painfree and able to do my job would mean everything to me and my family." I have spoken the same way to people whether they are billionaire or homeless. ...

What it took to become succesful shocked me

April 7, 2014 – 9:18 am
What it took to become successful shocked me, and I don't know if I could have gotten where I am now, if I had known what it would require to get here. When you get to a point in any discipline that you actually have a moment to reflect upon your journey, you'll regret how much you squandered in overexertion. If you are of the opinion that you can take it easy and coast along without hustling (and sometimes overdoing it), you won't be able to climb the sliding debris of growth. You just can't accomplish any substantial dream with "just enough" effort, because you can't know what is "enough" (to achieve a goal) until after you've given too much. I have neither focused on being able to surpass the force that I can withstand, nor upon doing just enough to touch the bottom of ...

Can’t Listen to Lyrics?

April 7, 2014 – 9:17 am
I can't listen to lyrics and work. My dyslexia causes heard words to instantly congeal into what I'm reading or writing. This works to my advantage in creating new ideas but not when I'm attempting to read or write current ones. So, I either listen to nothing or if the extraneous noise is too intrusive when traveling or living in a household of children, I use a classical goto list to optimize my work performance. Here's a sample list which will help you laser focus your own: 1. Images for Orchestra By Claude Debussy 2. Gymnopedie No.1 By Erik Satie 3. Enigma Variations By Edward Elgar 4. The Planets By Gustav Holst 5. Eroica Symphony, 3rd Movement By Ludwig van Beethoven 6. The Hungarian Rhapsodies By Franz Liszt 7. Night on Bald Mountain By Modest Mussorgsky 8. Possente Spirto By Claudio Monteverdi 9. Song of the Gondolier By Felix Mendelssohn 10. Piano Sonata in E Flat Major By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Download the playlist and give it ...
